Review: Lush 'No drought" Dry Shampoo




First of all I LOVE how this smells. It smells like lemon candy. OMG soooooo good. But that's all I really like about this. There are a few problems with No Drought. And although I love the smell it's not enough to make me want to buy it EVER again. 

First of all it's white...like white white. I have thick dark brown/black hair and it leaves a grey cast in my hair...not very attractive. TIP: Do not apply the dry shampoo to your normal part in your hair. Instead section off your hair, if you have thick hair like mine section it off a couple of times, and apply it to the roots. By applying it to other sections of your hair you can kind of hide the ugliness of the white cast. 

Second if you've got thick hair applying this in one section, not enough. I actually apply it in three sections and it still doesn't absorb much oil. How I use this is by applying it to my roots, rubbing it into my scalp and about a centimetre into my hair with my fingers then leaving it in for a couple of minutes and brushing it out. But honestly I don't feel like it does anything. My hair doesn't feel less oily it just feels heavy. 

You get sooo much product with this and it'll last you a very long time. However, I still wouldn't recommend this for anyone with dark hair. There are plenty of dry shampoos on the market that are more effective and don't leave a grey cast, so personally for me I would go quality over quantity.

Cons
- White cast
- Ineffective
- Too much product 
Note: Lush provides an expiry date (approximately a year from purchase). Even if you were to use No Drought every second day no one would be able to finish a bottle. Therefore maybe Lush should give the option of a smaller bottle at a lower price point. However I wouldn't get rid of the product just because of the expiry. Unless something was wrong with it, the consistency changed or something along those lines.

Pros
- SCENT
- Value for money

Rating: 2/5

Where and how much: Lush - $13.95

First off the obvious how cute is the packaging? The colours are soooo cute and pretty. Love it!!!!!
I really like the baby lips, it's moisturising, goes on really smooth and looks glossy when you apply it. They smell okay (the menthol one smells like vicks) and I find them to be longer lasting than normal lip balms given your not eating or drinking (they last for about 1-2 hours). The menthol flavour has that tingling feeling which I enjoy but if you don…

Review: Dettol Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate

Today I'll be doing a review on a product concerning personal hygiene. We all know that in winter people are more susceptible to the flu and colds, especially if you haven't had a flu shot (like me...). So in order to lower chances of catching a cold, hand hygiene is vital. Because a lot of the time hands are doing all the work germs can spread very fast, therefore to prevent the spread of germs, soap is one of the easiest ways to ensure you're not spreading germs to family and friends. 

I had the opportunity to try a Dettol product new to the market. Dettol has a number of versions of their new hand washes so there will most likely be one for you. They include; Delight with Honey & Apricot, Replenish with Shea Butter & Rose Water and of course revitalise with Raspberry and Pomegranate. 

Dettol's Revitalise Antibacterial Hand Wash with Raspberry and Pomegranate has the most beautiful fruity scent. Honestly is smells EXACTLY like raspberry and pomegranate, it is d…

Review: Optiva Aqua-Capture Serum and Nourishing Night Cream

So firstly my skin type is dry/normal. I'm prone to hormonal breakouts. Every time I get a pimple it scars whether or not I've popped it (gross I know). So my main issue are my scars. But like I mentioned I do have somewhat dry skin and I really do feel like these have helped with my dry patches and preventing my skin from flaking.

Overall I think this is a really nice serum, but honestly I'm not really a serum girl and this product hasn't converted me. I feel like it's an unnecessary step. But if…
